Poured from a can into a spiegelau ipa glass. Enjoyed with some super spicy indian food and they complimented each other perfectly. This beer is incredibly balanced, just bursting with tropical fruits, peaches, apricots, and tangerines. So easy drinking. The taste lingers but never bitter or biting. I love this beer and could drink it all day. It's juicy but balanced and feels lighter than the abv would suggest.
